Tired of not having the confidence to speak up in meetings? This class will help you overcome your speaking anxiety.

We all know that having good communication skills is important in today's world. But it can be hard to learn how to communicate well when you're an introvert or have social anxiety.

The School of Connection was founded by Michael Sokolin who has suffered from severe social anxiety. He wanted a place where people could learn how to speak in public without feeling judged or anxious about their performance. Our school uses techniques that work for introverts and those with social phobia so you'll feel at ease while learning these valuable skills.

Workshop overview:

The workshop is all practice-based, starting with voice and breathing exercises, improvised speaking exercises and opportunities to deliver off-the cuff speeches.

Group discussion will take place to highlight the existing strengths of the speakers, followed by potential areas for improvement.

Our principles are grounded in authenticity. Our approach to helping people overcome their fears is done through encouraging participants to drop the personas they wear in their day-to-day lives in order to express themselves with honesty, and discover their natural speaking style.

We’re big fans of embracing vulnerability and strongly believe it’s a strength, not a weakness. Only through vulnerability do we drop our guard and communicate in a way that truly connects to others.

The Session will include:

Technique training according to the '8 fundamentals of a confident public speaker':

- Breath and pace

- Voice projection

- Physicality (body language and eye contact)

- Content (structure)

- Intention

- Emotions and tone variety

More on Our Philosophy:

Our mission is bigger than just helping people become better at public speaking, our mission is to help create a more transparent and connected society.

Our society celebrates extrinsic success; confidence is presented to be smooth, slick, suave and charismatic. Because of this we neglect parts of our personality, our feelings, our idiosyncrasies, our uniqueness, our quirkiness and ultimately our vulnerability in pursuit of becoming confident, according to what society deems as confidence. However, we risk becoming ‘well-rehearsed robots’ and not sincere individuals, who aren’t afraid of expressing their humanness. Our approach offers a very non-conventional way of become an empowering and inspiring communicator.
